Packaging line in furniture industry

Furniture packaging is a very important step in your process. It will convey your brand image to buyers, but also in depots and stores.

This packaging must protect your products at all stages of the Supply Chain: delivery from your factory to distributors, but also from distributors to individuals. Your packaging must be both qualitative and environmentally friendly. But it must also be linked to an economically efficient process.

With our experience, we can assist you in setting up or redesigning this process.

Depending on your product typology and your production policy (Assembled furniture – Kit furniture / Batch production – Production to order), we will work with you to define your needs in terms of packaging line.

Type of organization for packaging line

  • Components supplied parcel by parcel (manufacture to order)
  • Components supplied in batches along the packaging line (batch work)
  • Mixed per batch and on order
  • Ergonomic workstation organization
  • Definition of control and traceability points
  • Balancing of stations according to Takt Time

Define the type of packaging

  • Cardboard – Shrink film
  • Cardboard box type
  • Type of closure (glue or adhesive)
  • Type of packing (cardboard – polystyrene – wood chipboard)
  • Method of supplying cartons (by batch, manufacturing to order)
